I finally got back into the studio for a bit! Time went by SO fast! I didn't get to spend as much play-time as I had hoped for, but hey, as busy as our lives are, I will take what I can get.
I not only got all the blades cut out, (80) I sewed them together and finished four plates. Now I have all six sewn together.
I have two plates attached to the background blocks. One is Lucy's block:
This is Charlie Brown's block and it is ready to sew down:
When I make these pieced blocks, I get four pairs of triangles from each one when I trim off the corners. Instead of tossing these away, I am using them as leaders and enders. I will have a huge bunch of half-square-triangle blocks when I am done. ALL of them will be half white; the other half being either blue or red.
I seem to have been playing a lot with this quilt this weekend. Besides working on the border/sashing squares, I decided to put up some of the blocks on the design wall:
That is all I have to show you tonight. I hope you are staying cool where you are. We are in a major heat wave here. I can hardly wait till autumn! Till then, with the AC running, Happy Sewing Y'all!!!
